Prima Delight Mini Album

I couldn't wait to create once I got my hands on the Delight collection by Jodie Lee.  I used my Accucut birdcage die and medium weight chipboard for the base of the album. 



As part of a challenge for myself to use the Sizzix dies I purchased in July, I used the Birds die set on this project and die cut the birds with corrugated paper from Joann's. 

I uploaded a video talking about the album:

Thanks so much for taking a look!!

Crafty Secrets Merci Card

This week, the sponsor for the Shabby Tea Room is Crafty Secrets, and I have to play along, since I love their stamps.  It is week #185 and it's an Apple Theme.  Here is the card I created:

The red panel is stamped with images from the Crafty Secrets French Mail stamp collection, and the fruit image is taken from the Summertime Images and Journal Notes.  The Merci sentiment is backed on black chipboard.  Other supplies include Graphic 45 French Country 6x6 paper pad, Papertrey Ink sentiment, Spellbinders Rose Creations die, Sizzix embossing folder, Spare Parts metal, some twine, and ribbon.

I have a video on Youtube showing how I created this card:
